Ezekiel Elliott was completely shut down by the Broncos’ defense in the Cowboys 42-17 loss Sunday.
The 2016 NFL rushing leader ran nine times for eight yards in the loss. He also caught four passes for 14 yards for an average of 0.6 yards per play on the afternoon.
It’s more of a pitch count I think, Phillips told reporters Thursday. But it’s a number of plays and we’ll see how he is. He looked to be in good shape. You know, football shape and shape are two different things because you’re carrying a lot more weight with pads on and so forth. But he doesn’t seem to be bothered too much by the reps we’re giving him in practice. It’s not wearing him out, so we’ll make sure in the ball game that we watch him.
Phillips added that not having practiced until this week in Phillips’ 3-4 alignment, as opposed to the 4-3 defense the Rams previously ran, shouldn’t be an issue for the three-time Pro Bowler.

Donald, 26, is in the fourth year of his rookie contract and is due to make $1.8 million in base salary this year. The Rams also picked up his fifth-year option next season, paying him roughly $6.9 million, but Donald is hoping to negotiate a new contract that will put him among the highest-paid defensive tackles in the NFL.
